Observations in the 1940s and 1950s that topical chlorophyllin had deodorizing effects on foul-smelling wounds led clinicians to believe in its odor-reducing properties. Some case reports indicated that chlorophyllin doses of 100-200 mg/day were effective in reducing fecal odor in ostomy patients, 100-300 mg/day decreased subjective assessments of urinary and fecal odor in incontinent patients, but at least one placebo-controlled trial found that the effect of 75 mg of oral chlorophyllin three times daily did not differ from that of a placebo in the patients' subjective assessment of the unpleasant odor. A small study found that oral chlorophyllin taken at 60 mg three times daily for three weeks significantly decreased urinary trimethylamine concentrations in Japanese TMAU patients.
The deodorizing effects chlorophyllin might be largely due to chlorophyllin's effect on bacterial metabolism, as it interferes with oxidation-reduction mechanisms of anaerobic organisms.
